Hi, I’m Catalina.

I don’t want to live in auto-pilot mode. So here, I reflect.

One of the things that scares me the most is going through my life without making conscious decisions or being fully aware of my actions. To prevent that, I write essays exploring personal experiences to improve my self-awareness. (I also share all of my cringe-worthy moments. You've been warned.)

I hope you resonate with them, feel invited to see things from a new perspective, and become aware of all the aspects you may be dealing with in auto-pilot mode.

Where to start?

  • Bearing souls, breaking locks - On choosing to share moments of vulnerability.

  • Homebound - On the pressure of becoming a digital nomad, seeking growth without changing Zip Codes and finding expansiveness in the familiar.

  • Take the bus - On the unique experiences and community-building potential of public transport.

  • The art of living deliberately - On how filmmaker Kariza Santos embraces a proactive approach to life, overcoming creative challenges, and embodying tenacity for deliberate and purposeful living.

  • The price for solitude - On taking on alone time, battling physical pain, and the transformative power of vulnerability.

These essays offer a glimpse into my perspective and writing style. I invite you to start here and join me on this journey of self-reflection and growth.
